Exeter Food Festival 2015: A Flavour

 General view of Exeter Food Festival 2015

 Luscombe Drinks

 Quickes Cheese

 Gaucho BBQ - huge chunks of meat!

 Pasty demonstration in the demo Ashgrove kitchen with Chunk of Devon and Glenn Cosby

The eggs I always use: Black Dog Eggs.  Free range from Crediton.

A great day out!  I enjoyed it thoroughly and got a few cooking tips along the way.  Thanks to L for accompanying me and being so nice.

Market Street Cafe, Newton Abbot and River Cottage Collaborate with Young Chefs

Market Street Cafe are doing something very clever.  13 weeks ago Young Devon got together with River Cottage with a suggestion of training up some young people into chefs, and using up some space they had.

The result is a cafe in the centre of Newton Abbot (entrance is opposite Ridgways Shoes, near the library and Jolly Farmer pub) called the Market Street Cafe.

I attended the launch of it and the food and drink were delicious.  I think they are giving young people the opportunity to get trained as chefs and then show off their prowess.  Richard Younger-Ross and Anne-Marie Morris were there (I don't know if you noticed but there is an election soon...).

There was a real buzz about the place.  I think it is now open to the public.  I recommend you try it!  We had (amongst other things) roast beef crostini, scotch eggs, really good fishcakes, home made fish fingers, plus a range of local drinks

The cafe is located above the Change Academy rather than below it as the newspaper article states. There is a flight of steps to navigate.
